3T Sphinx Ltd Carbon Bar 40 cm
The 3T Sphinx Ltd Carbon Bar 40cm is a dedicated endurance bar for track races that alternate between level high speed and all-out sprinting.
- Unique forward bend supports the rider in the sphinx wide-aero position pioneered by Spanish former track champion Joan Llaneras.
- Combines an aerofoil top section with lower handholds from the Ergosum drop bar.
- The wingtips of the aerofoil meet the upper part of the round-section drops, which are slightly tilted up this allows riders to hook their wrists inside the bend, palms facing outwards.
- Vertical part of the bend flattens into a narrow aerofoil section, and then joins the bottoms which provide a conventional round-section handhold for the sprint.
Sphinx Ltd is legal for UCI events but your stem length is critical to staying within the rules. You will likely need a shorter stem than you are used to. Refer to Article 1.3.022 of UCI technical regs, specifying that the handlebar be no more than 5 cm in front of the bicycle’s front axle.
